The film entitled Down and Derby is about a pinewood derby racing competition. As a young man, Phil Davis had always been confident about being the fastest runner and best jumper in his class. Since childhood he always enjoyed that. However, the coming of a new kid to their class proves a threat to his fame. Ace who is the new kid takes over the first position in all races which were formerly occupied by Phil. This trend continues later on in life whereby their sons get involved in competitions. Ace's son is always first in every competition while Phil's son is always second.

Phil's wife, Kim gives each boy a pinewood derby kit. They are expected to design their own cars from the kit provided to them under the supervision of adults. However, instead of supervising their sons, the fathers instead take upon themselves to do the job. Each man wants to design the best and fastest car. Each one wants to make his car unique from that of the other. Their wives get angry about this obsession and dedication to such a trivial issue. They decide to leave their homes taking their sons with them.

Jimmy and Blaine reveal to Phil that the car that presently holds the record of fastest car ever made was a car made by Ace when he was still a young boy. After their discussion, the three guys then decide to put their ideas together and design a car that will break Ace's record. They copy the idea Ace used in making his famous car. By so doing they succeed in designing a car faster than Ace's famous car.

During the competition, the car made by the three men wins the race and Ace is shocked that Phil finally defeated him. The car wins and sets a new record. Ace is disgruntled and very disappointed by the fact that his record was broken.
